The Snow Town in Northeast China Began to Receive Visitors since November 11, 2017

Published: Nov. 14, 2017
As of November 11, 2017, the China Snow Town, also known as Shuangfeng Forestry Center of Mudanjiang City, Heilongjiang Province in northeast China began to receive visitors, with abundant snowfall as thick as 50 centimeters.

What to See in China Snow Town?

Layers of snow cover on mountains, rivers, trees, and wooden roofs make a silver and white world. In the early morning, the whole town is shrouded in the glow of the sun, giving a sense of serenity. When the night falls, red lanterns along roadside add more charm to the town. Though not big, the gorgeous town is popular among tourists as a winter resort.

What to Do in China Snow Town?

Folk activities in the town are also awesome. At night, you can enjoy a grand yangko dance on the Xueyun Street performed by over a hundred of local villagers. Dressed in colorful costumes, they dance to the beat cheerfully. The snow sculptures should not be missed as well. Staying in a hostel provides you the opportunity to sleep on the unique brick bed in northeastern China and the hospitable host may serve you with the best local dish - braised vegetables with meat.

    It takes about 6-7 hours. The departure time varies every year. In 2018, it departs at 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 from Central Avenue.

    Wanjia Forest Hot Spring Hotel and Xueshanshan Family Hotel are recommended.

    As I know, Travel China Guide doesn't have such a tour. Maybe you can go there by yourself or find a local travel agency.

    Hi Alan.
    By the way, at snow valley, can I get to see scenery like in snow town? Which is mushroom and cake house (houses covered with thick and sticky snow)? Is there any public transport to go to snow valley from Harbin?
    Answered by Alan | Dec. 11, 2018 17:09

    Well, the houses there are not like the mushroom and cake houses in snow town but you can enjoy other snow entertainments. It will be less crowded and cheaper than the snow town. There is no public transportation available and you need to hire a private car.

    No, it is not located in Snow Town and it is located in Erlanghe Scenic Area, about 40km to the Snow Town. Taking a bus to the Erlanghe scenic area, you can go there on foot easily. But if you want to go to the Snow Town, you need to take a bus or hire a private car.

    Hi Jenny,
    Thanks for your reply. May I know what is the name of the bus station in Erlanghe? From Erlanghe bus station, did they provide taxi or any other transportation to hotel?

    Thank you.

    Hi, it seems they arrive at the Erlanghe scenic area directly and I'm not sure if they have any other transportation to hotel. I just searched the information on the internet.
